There are a lot of genres that have helped anime shows get the attention they deserve around the world. However, dark fantasy is a unique genre that has taken anime to new levels of excitement and thrill. Anime like Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Hunter x Hunter are great examples of the genre because they have a good mix of horror and fantasy themes and a lot of thrills and action. In the past few years, there have only been a few new adaptations in this classification, but this year is looking better thanks to MAPPA’s Hell’s Paradise anime.
Hell’s Paradise is an upcoming anime based on Yuji Kaku’s manga, which he wrote and drew in Japan. In 2018, the manga started coming out once a week in the Shonen Jump+ app and website, and it ended in a satisfying way in 2021. The manga was a huge hit, so it wasn’t long before it was announced that MAPPA would turn it into an anime series. So, with that out of the way, here’s what we know about Hell’s paradise.
